I saw a used rifle advertised on the net in the right cal make and model. I had been looking around for one of these for a while. I Spoke to the rfd over the phone in the week just to get some idea of the condition, age etc, I was told it had fired less than 200 rounds so like new. And that it had just come back from being proofed! So I arranged a viewing.
Viewed rifle, Synthetic stock had been mark quite a lot for the "almost new gun" I ask same questions, "definitely less than 200 rounds and it had just come back from being proofed"! I double checked if it was the rifle we had spoken about in the week and it was.
There was quite alot of creep in the trigger. I was told it could be adjusted "ok". The rfd then told me it was a set trigger and showed me how it worked. I had another go I set the trigger and was going to give the the stock a bump on the floor, I lifted the muzzle my fingers were no where near the trigger it dry fire of its own accord! RFD smiled and told me "that was a lite trigger" "ok". I tried a couple more times with the set trigger, I barely moved the rifle it dry fire of its own accord!
I cocked it again with out the set trigger and bumped it on the floor from 3 inches it dry fired. RFD ask what did I expect? I made my excuses and left.
If a gun had just been proofed, Would this have not been picked up apron? even if it is not in the proof test?
